For my records here….. I started pulse #12 on Sunday, October 4th. I have been tolerating my pulses (for the most part) decently. The first 2 days the left side of my head felt clogged with cement. My left ear, eye, lymph nodes, sinus were painful. Right knee painful. Total inability to concentrate... first 3 days I felt as if I were in "suspended animation" and all I really did was “zone out” and stay in the house.Wednesday evening I took 1 glass of Potent C Guard for bowel tolerance..... 1 glass; 8 oz w/1 teaspoon of Potent C Guard powerder. I usually try to do a bowel cleanse after a pulse. Most times it takes 4-6 8 oz.glasses to initiate a bowel evacuation. I immediately started having severe colonic pain (peristaltic overload) and was on the bathroom floor calling for my husband. I have never given birth, but this has to be what it feels like.
Without going into specific details of the rest of the night, the following morning when I woke up I had rectal bleeding..... (A LOT - not just a few drops). My husband was very concerned, but I did NOT want to go to the emergency room. Called my gastro and they advised I should go to the hospital. I was admitted, given the usual gambot of IV fluids, blood work, etc. Had a colonoscopy done (2nd one this year) on Friday. I asked the doctor prior to being anethisized, if he could culture for chlamydia pneumoniae in my colon....... well, you can guess the reaction I got from him on that one. My gastro also wants me to have a duplex visceral doppler ultra sound to rule out mesenteric ischemia.
This hospital stay was not a pleasant one (staff, nurses, etc.) and I just wanted to get out of there... since the ultrasound could not be done until Monday I requested to be released for the weekend to have the ultrasound done next week.
I am home, weak and now suffering, I believe, the aftermath of my pulse (tachycardia,and probably some porphyria). Waiting for the final results of the colonoscopy and the upcoming results of the ultrasound.
I read Norman Yarvin’s mother’s account of her treatment of IBD with CAP….. it appears she had bleeding with her pulses which eventually subsided.
Another one to add to my list…..
at least I'm finding the CPN
